A curse had settled over the small New England coastal town...an unknown force that was about to irrevocably change the lives of four young women--and the men captivated by their spell.
With his darkly handsome looks and edgy attitude, Officer Cullen Ryan could spark a woman’s deepest fantasies. He’d never looked at brainy, virginal Dr. Elizabeth Douglas that way. But when the former town outcast strode into the room where Elizabeth had found a body, her heart beat fast. And when they formed a wary partnership to investigate the murder, Elizabeth discovered something else--a dangerous passion that threatened her safe, sheltered world.
Then Elizabeth became the target of the ruthless killer and Cullen vowed to do anything to protect her. But could he save himself from the haunting pull of desire in the sanctuary of Elizabeth’s eyes?
First in the Moriah's Landing series.
